Thanks,

I had a laptop and a desktop die so there has been a delay but I have 2 salvaged songs from the lost hard drives to put up in the next few days hopefully.

I just finished a 12 part video rockumentary of an east coast road trip you can see on my youtube page.

Working on another "big bang machine sequel", an EP loosely based on "the warriors" movie and a musical montage of field recordings from the road trip.

Planning for a baby in May and trying to finish 1 more degree by then... wish me luck.

I should be able to get some free time soon... stay tuned.

How goes things for you?

Best of Luck with the Baby. We didn't really plan ours and now she's a Jr in High School, we didn't plan the 3 after her either.

Things are going well, still have a job and work is busy. Kids are all back in school, and the wife is taking Massage Therapy classes so she can get a license. She wants to go for Accupuncture eventually (I wonder if I should be scared).

Can't wait to see your new stuff.

No, your PM-ness, she had the double comma in front--it's kind of like a European wildcard.

It loosely sounds like the more simple (and appropriate?) PMS.

Etree is clean and legal as far as I know, but I will have to confer to the experts as I have yet to set up and run bitorrent software.

Mediafire works but is not policed so I think you could find 'illegal' stuff there - I don't know about viruses but you could certainly pick up lots of bad cookies / spyware from sites like Mediafire

Roch: Never used mediafire and you need to be more specific about the term "Legal."

E-tree is surely recognized by the Grateful Dead and seems to operate with other bands permission. The language gets rather ambiguous so a clear cut definition of "legal" in terms of copyright law will not be forthcoming.

Like any other site you're new to, it's useful and informative to read the FAQ page.

If you're concerned about Bit-Torrent and file sharing, I have never had issues with a virus or worm using well known file sharing sites including E-Tree.

Be aware however that there are many offshore Torrent sites that knowingly host copyrighted content. Lately the RIAA has gained access to ISP files through the courts and these fingerprints have lead to numerous arrests and high profile fines for illegal downloads.

It is my advice to stay strictly with sites like Etree or right here that has had some communication with the band, and even if the permission is only "implied" the beef will probably begin and end with the site operators or content providers.

Stay away from publicly released CD content and publicly released movies.

Hope that helps, but there is a lot to this issue and it pays to be more specific when asking a question.

Not for profit sites are legal!(long as the content is)
Mediafire you are at the mercy of the uploader.
to quote the disclaimer above :


STATEMENT TO MP3 SITE OPERATORS
The Grateful Dead and our managing organizations have long encouraged the purely non-commercial exchange of music taped at our concerts and those of our individual members. That a new medium of distribution has arisen - digital audio files being traded over the Internet - does not change our policy in this regard. Our stipulations regarding digital distribution are merely extensions of those long-standing principles and they are as follow:

No commercial gain may be sought by websites offering digital files of our music, whether through advertising, exploiting databases compiled from their traffic, or any other means.
All participants in such digital exchange acknowledge and respect the copyrights of the performers, writers and publishers of the music.
This notice should be clearly posted on all sites engaged in this activity.
We reserve the ability to withdraw our sanction of non-commercial digital music should circumstances arise that compromise our ability to protect and steward the integrity of our work.

Etree is safer than mediafire or share library or torrents...

Those other sites are not moderated for copyright or viruses....
